Exoskeleton enhances the movement speed of the player by 30% when fully powered. It consumes 200kW (200kJ/s) of power when used.

Exoskeleton is a kind of Equipment module. It can be used by placing it in the grid that opens by right clicking the armor.

Each exoskeleton occupies a 2x4 tall rectangle in the equipment grid. It is possible to use multiple exoskeletons in modular armor, and the speed bonus will stack additively. There is no speed limit; it is limited only by the amount of room available in the armor and by available power.

Exoskeletons have a 56kJ internal electricity storage, visible as a charging bar. With no power, this will sustain them for less than a second. As the available power approaches 200kW, the charging bar will both drain more slowly and have a larger minimum size. The exoskeleton will provide a full speed bonus until the charging bar hits the minimum size, at which point the exoskeleton's speed bonus drops to what it can maintain. At 200kW or greater, the charging bar does not shrink and the speed bonus remains at maximum.

Note, however, that exoskeletons are below shields in armor charging priority, and if the shields are damaged at all, exoskeletons will rapidly run dry and will not resume their full speed until the shields are fully charged. This makes them fairly useless for quick getaways.

Movement speed increase

The base movement speed is 8.902 tiles per gamesecond. [1] Each additional exoskeleton increases the speed by 30 % of the base speed.
